    Of all the small toys I've been gathering so far..

    This is it! A Honda EX1000 genny. I have been longing for a Honda genny for quite some time. Unfortunately, a new EU series luggage genny is way out of the budget, and also wasn't until 2 recent local power outages (more than 6hrs each) that got me thinking once again. Although I have a ET1200...

    finally took the plunge and replaced Halo bulbs

    on my wifey's 10 yrs old Camry (low beam, 9006). Original unit (Sylvania, grey body type) still works but seems a bit dim. I didn't go for gimmicky ones like Xtravision, etc. but just ordinary Halogen replacement bulbs (by Sylvania). As a result: I regained approx. 20% brightness on low beam...

    Bought some Bridgestone Potenza with Serenity
